Pomona, Calif. –
This weekend could be huge for NHRA Full Throttle Series Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Angie Smith.
 
The North Carolina native is not only racing for her first-career class win, but is also on the hunt for the sponsorship that would allow her to race in 2012 and beyond. Her second-round ET of 6.955 seconds was good enough for 13th overall and was the seventh-highest time of the session. While her husband/crew chief/team owner Matt Smith and teammate Michael Ray were unable to make it down the track in Q2, Angie’s pass was smooth and event free.
 
“I was seventh of the session today and had a good run,” she said. “We’ll just see if it rains or not and if not, hopefully we’ll get further up the qualifying ladder. We’ll just see what’s going on. I think there’s still a 60 percent chance of rain. It’s just going to be one of those things. If it rains, we’re in. If it doesn’t rain, we have a good shot to qualify in the top eight.”
 
Angie and the rest of Matt Smith Racing need a good weekend at the Auto Club NHRA World Finals. After reaching the semi-finals two weeks ago at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a strong run at Auto Club Raceway in the 2011 season finale could attract the much-needed marketing partners that would allow her to continue racing next season.
 
“We don’t have anything for 2012,” Smith said while taking a break from working on her MSR Buell. “I don’t have anything. If we don’t get anything, I’m not going to be out here racing. That’s really a bad deal because I love racing more than anything and I want to be out here racing. I love it. So if you know anybody, tell your friends, tell your family, tell anybody. We’re desperate, we need sponsors.”
 
Former PSM champion Andrew Hines is currently atop the leaderboard after running a 6.820 ET Friday. If Saturday’s qualifying is rained out, Angie would face Hector Arana in the first round of Sunday’s eliminations.
